No need to apologize. Tell your neurologist's about the depression side effect of that medication
As someone who was once labeled as not likely to ever reach a long-term seizure free state (and have… read more
It's happened quite a few times at bedtime most recently last night, i feel heavy and disconnected but also like my body is moving around, my eyes quickly moving around...
After my right lobe craniotomy on 12-16-2020 being a constant burden on my family unable to help out, drive or work had a couple of trips via ambulance to the ER. Seen for: 8/2/2021

I am 100% positive that hormones are playing a huge factor in both the frequency and intensity of my seizures but I’m not sure where to start to address it. If anyone has any suggestions, PLEASE let me know!
I started with seizures just as I was coming out of menopause at 54. I’m going to be 64 in June. All of my family and friends as well as myself think my epilepsy was brought on by a hormonal change. I… read more
My wife is living with epilepsy and I am so scared to death of losing her. I would like to know if there is anything we could do, or is it something that's inevitable?
I would say when for some reason the seizures can not be controlled, no matter what they do
I have heard in the past from several friends who have tried many others including surgery, implants or non-medication alternative methods. However, I think it would help if those of you who have to share your experience with those are now at the point where they have been told that medication will never allow them to reach a long-term seizure free state.
If Q + A section was better organized, then I would not have to ask this question, but we have a support site, so we have to do what we can… read more

Earlier today, a rain storm came through. Maybe a minute before this, something happened, rather not discuss it. Thought about brain tumors and intracranial pressure. When the barometer drops, ICP is higher than the pressure outside of the head. Had brain surgery, and brain tumors have the same effect- the tumor presses on the brain. Any experiences with sudden changes in air pressure?
Me too. Exactly my experience, every word. Even what my neurologist said to me this morning, exactly word for word. He said he had deep experience with epilepsy for many years and never heard of air… read more
When did you get it?
Diagnosed 1992 I think winter. Oh wait nope summer.
I went out yesterday purposely and I'm happy again! I can't wait for this weekend! I'm going to finally do open mic again! Last time was 2020 and I blocked him. I spoke a little ruff to him first
I've got complex partial seizures with identified abnormality in my temporal lobe. Seizures are focal so my neurologist said surgery is an option I should consider, but I'm pretty scared and not sure it is worth it. My seizures aren't very bad and I could still lead a mostly-normal life but I plan to become a doctor and with sleep deprivation being a major trigger for me it may prevent me from pursuing my desire to work in a hospital (which means long hours). Im not sure about the process of… read more
